Top Software Development Companies In Vietnam | Savvycom -1

During this pandemic, businesses across the world are cutting down on local staff. Some are deferring their planned IT projects until a more stable time, and some are canceling projects indefinitely. The savior for all such companies is IT outsourcing.

Outsourcing is a business practice in which certain company functions are assigned to outside service providers rather than performed in house. In other words, a company seeks external help or support to perform some of its business activities so it can stay focused on core business goals while saving time and money. In today’s tough scenario, businesses can survive through software outsourcing services – and some businesses might even be able to come out of this pandemic doing well.

The outsourcing industry has been an integral partner in companies’ crisis responses across sectors. Offshore software development to another country such as Vietnam is a smart decision that companies should consider to maximize their productivity in a cost-effective manner. This proven approach has led to many successful projects, as it allows a business to focus on its core competencies. It should be used as a strategy that can really boost a business.

2. Why outsource to a software development company in Vietnam

1. Pandemic stabilization

Recognizing that its medical system would soon become overwhelmed by even mild spread of the virus, Vietnam chose prevention early and on a massive scale. The country reported one of the least cases in Southeast Asia with minimal deaths. We are also featured in various reputable newspapers for relentless efforts and successful countermeasures of the pandemic. This has given businesses based in Vietnam a head start over global competitors at this time.

2. Cost-Effectiveness

According to Innotech, outsourcing software development in Vietnam costs 50% less than the rivals from India and China. Anderson Vietnam also estimates that outsourcing per person in Vietnam is only $20,000 per person a year compared to $40,000 per person in India. These figures are convincing enough to place Vietnam as the top future contender for offshore development projects. 

As Indian companies enter the maturing cycle, the cost differential between India and Vietnam will increase even further. The outsourcing costs in India are most likely to increase in the coming years.

3. Potential Workforce
